Wicked West Expo Was a Success!

Nick and the Awesome in Action Team had so much fun at Wicked West Comic Expo at the Budweiser Event Center on April 2nd and 3rd, 2022.

There were so many fun opportunities to help kids discover their inner superheroes, and see their super cute masks.

Nick was so excited to set up his booth the night before the Expo, and showing it off the 1st day!

Adrian and Camila are super cool!

Some of the kids really embraced their inner superheroes with cool handmade masks!

Evie strikes her most super pose with her Dad!
Henry and Evie play it cool with their Dad!
The Sommerfeld Family were like herding a group of super cats! Look how cool their masks are!

Nick loved talking with everyone who stopped at his booth about his business, and his theme for the Expo; Anyone Can Be a Hero!

Nick and his job coach Liz had fun dressing up too!

New Friends

It wasn’t all hard work though, Nick also got the chance to have some fun meeting Lucy the Velociraptor, Doctor Robotnik, and Rocket Raccoon! Nick was a little scared of some of the costumes at the Expo, but he was brave and put on his mask to become his super alter-ego, Captain Laughs a Lot!

Old Friends

Nick got the chance to see his friend Nick Armstrong, who heads Fort Collins Comic Con, coming to Fort Collins August 27th and 28th!

He also ran into his old friend, Mary Poppins, and had to take her home!

We hope you can join us again really soon at the Fort Collins Comic Con!

Until then….as Spiderman says: “With great power, comes great responsibility!” Sir Laughs a Lot MUST press on with his Ability Awareness and keep our community safe (and well educated!)

~ Swoosh!~

Wicked West Expo 2022 – IT’S HAPPENING!

Wicked West Expo is finally happening! Originally planned for 2020, the Expo was delayed due to COVID-19.

Nick and the Awesome in Action team are so excited to share that Nick will have a booth both days of the event and a panel on Sunday, time to be announced. Nick’s panel is called Anyone Can Be a Hero and features Nick sharing some of his strengths and helping the audience find their inner superpowers!

The Expo takes place from 10:00AM to 6:00PM on April 2nd and 3rd. The Expo will be in the First National Bank Building at the Ranch Events Complex.

It would mean so much to Nick and the team if his community could come support him at Wicked West! As we transition back into in person opportunities, the nerves are running high but so is the excitement. We are pumped to be part of this fun filled event.

Use it as an excuse to dress up as your favorite character, bring the kids, and check out some amazing exhibitors.

You do need to purchase tickets for the event, they are $15 for ages 12 and up, and $5 for ages 11 and under. The ticket covers access to both days of the events. You can purchase tickets by clicking this link.

You never know who you’ll meet at Comic Con!
